Spring trend: colored pants

Colored pants.  They’re everywhere!  We first saw them this past fall–remember all the photos of celebrities wearing red jeans?  The spring is showing a much wider variety of colors–yellow, purple, teal, and fuschia–as well as different cuts and silhouettes, like skinny, relaxed fit, cropped, and full length.  True, they’re not a classic look, and in a couple years you may be sending them off to Goodwill, but if you crave bright colors in your wardrobe, this is a good way to get them. Colored pants also accommodate another spring trend–color blocking.  Wear a solid, different-colored top with these pants, and then shoes in another color–voila!

Gap 1969 Midweight Legging Jeans
– $69.95

An eyeful o' eggplant.

This is a legging jean, thus the fit is going to be very tight.  You may need to size up to avoid unflattering lumps and bumps.  From the pictures, it looks like this particular pant is not as saturated in color as the others–the back pockets look a little faded.  Also available in Russian red or brilliant blue.


Romeo & Juliet Couture Skinny Color Denim – $39.99

Slim. Hot. Red.

The color that started it all.  These are a super slim, super saturated red color.  Love the look of these paired with black or white tops, shoes, and accessories.  Also available in orange, yellow, blue, and green.

Banana Republic Rolled Hem Pocket Crop
– $69.50


If you’re not a fan of tight pants, these are a nice relaxed–but not baggy–fit.  A bit tighter than a typical boyfriend fit. Available in neutral colors as well like white and almond.  Shown with heels, but these would look great with simple flats.


Calvin Klein Skinny Leg Cropped Ankle Jeans – $69.50

Cropped. Sassy. Green

These are a delightfully whimsical shade of sea foam green.  Designers are showing a lot of green/blue combinations this spring, so try pairing with a navy blue top or shoes.  Available in a lot of sizes, including 14 and 16.


What do you think of colored pants?  Too trendy for your taste?  Or something fun to throw in the mix?
